Rakhi Sweets

Sweets is the essential ingredient when it comes to making the festive day full of sugary moments to be cherished by the loved ones with each other. The essence of any festival lies in the time spent by the whole clan together that keeps alive in their hearts the ancestral spirit of brotherhood and love. Especially, any Indian festival is incomplete without the traditional sweet dishes to savor the same aroma in our lives.

Raksha Bandhan is a festival that celebrates the chaste bond of brother and sister. On the auspicious day of Shravana Purnima (Full Moon day) that falls in the month of August, already, the enthusiasm is at it's peak. There's the element of gaiety surrounding the entire atmosphere. Rakhi sweets add up to the mushiness and balminess of the day.
Till the completion of all Rakhi Rituals, the womenfolk specially, observe fast. After the Rakhi tying ceremony, the girls perform arti and then put a piece of sweet into their mouth. In turn, the brother too does the same. Thus, sweets become like the sacred prasad which is taken to break the fast.

It is customary in India to present your loved ones with sweets on every joyous occasion. Raksha Bandhan is no exception in this matter. A box of sweets is a must to be included in the Rakhi Gift Basket while brothers and sisters greet each other on this day. If your dear brother or sister lives abroad and you wish to send them your love through Rakhi sweets, you will have to spend between US $13 to US $50.

Traditionally, womenfolk in the household used to wake up before the breaking of dawn and used to make delicious sweet dishes on the eve of Raksha Bandhan. Other than home-made sweets, laddoos, pista burfi and peda were widely loved Rakhi Sweets.

In the contemporary times, sweets too have donned a new avatar. They come in myriad colors, shapes, sizes and flavors. You will find sweets in the form of strawberries, mangoes, flowers and even in the form of cartoon characters.
